Join us for an evening with hiker and author Jennifer Pharr Davis at several of our libraries this month.
Pharr Davis has been named a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year and has covered more than 14,000 miles of long-distance hiking on six continents.
In 2011, Davis hiked the 2,185-mile Appalachian Trail in forty-six days, eleven hours, and twenty minutes — maintaining a remarkable average of forty-seven
miles per day. By doing this, she claimed the overall (male or female) fastest known time on the trail.
Pharr Davis has authored two books, The Pursuit of Endurance and Becoming Odyssa.
